OK, so like I said in a previous post, I just downloaded this game today from UBISOFT and haven't played it yet. I've been reading through the forum and have seen lots of great advice including custom training missions etc. I'm fairly decent at Flight Sim X and am looking forward to getting into this game. My question is, where in Single Player should I start? I was just going to start in New Pilot Career but then you have to choose a country. Does it matter which I choose? Is this even where I should be starting? Thanks very much!

I would start off by downloading 'straight from the farm' by Zeus cat. They're a series of excellent training missions just for beginners. You can get it from mission4today. just type the name of the campaign into the search bar and it'll pull it up for you.

After mastering the takeoff/landings, you can start pilot careers, or just do single missions until you're familiar with flying in IL2. It doesn't really matter which country you choose for pilot careers, you can start as many different careers as you like at the same time. Its just that you get a different 'storyline' for each different country/plane type.

Yes, do the straight from the famr missions, then I would go into quick mission builder, set up some bombers to shoot at, make sure they are set to empty for the loadout so they won't shoot back. Then just practice shooting them down for a while, and slowly move to faster planes. Read here: http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/23110283/m/9121094645

I'm just going to echo the other comments. Straight from the Farm first...it will answer many questions and train you to fly properly. Then move on to the Quick Mission Builder and start with easy targets and work your way up. Then you'll be ready to tackle online or offline campaigns.

Straight from the Farm and other campaigns are available at www.mission4today.com (http://www.mission4today.com)

I'd also say that in general user created campaigns are better than the dynamic generated campaigns that come with the game. SO if you find the dynamic campaigns a little dry...try a user created one.

If you are new then you would benefit greatly by downloading the "Two Minutes To Action Training Missions lvls:1-5 (Beginner-Intermediate)".

http://www.mission4today.com/index.php?name=Downloads&file=details&id=3358

They will both train you and keep you entertained for months to come.

I can tell you that FSX is watered down compared to IL2 so prepare for a rude awakening. However, IL2 is much more rewarding IMO http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Coming from a fresh noob, make sure to read anything you can about everything. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
